Post #5, @ milind.t.patil : Welcome to LQ.

The latest wireshark is version 1.8.4 : Not usable on RHEL 5 ...
RHEL 5 is an old OS (2007), the build prerequisites for new versions of wireshark are not available.

Please use version 1.0.15 : # yum install wireshark

# 7 . 'wireshark-gnome' is not the basic package. 'wireshark' is.

Packages, wireshark* ( If your OS is 32bits. ( $ uname -m )) :

1) su <password>

2) rpm -Uvh wireshark-1.0.15-1.el5_6.4.i386.rpm
.. and if some other packages ( dependencies for wireshark )
are missing, you will have to install those too.

3) rpm -Uvh wireshark-gnome-1.0.15-1.el5_6.4.i386.rpm

# 11 . The warning can be ignored.

The cpio error : A corrupt wireshark package ?

The EL 5 packages are here too :
http://ftp.scientificlinux.org/linux...ic/58/i386/SL/
→ → please try with a new download of the package.
